OK--I did it!!!
First finish is the top to the Gardner's Journal--
this was a 3-4 year project in the making--
and thanks to Chookyblue--It is now at this stage!!!!
And I just love it--the colors are really great in real life--
I did add the little saying at the top of the house--
I did get it from the book and I believe it is the title for the house block!!!
some blocks are missing--but most all the blocks I have actually stitched--
some 3 years ago for my local quilt shop--that's when I fell in love with the book and got my own copy and started my own set of blocks!!!!
And this is a UFO finish--totally finished--
The Christmas package quilt---this top was made 2 Christmas ago and the pattern boughten at least one or two Christmas's before that!!!!
It is hard to see here---but those are small yo-yo's for the centers of the bows on the packages--and this was a paper pieced quilt!!!
Now for "my" surprise!!!
On my walk tonight I seen a kitten eating on this lady's porch--
so I took a picture of it--
when I down loaded this picture--
I was sooo surprised and thankful to God---
you see I know this kitten--she is Miss Gracie's sister that got away from us last fall--
remember that story---I have worried and prayed for her often--she actually came back home--as the garage where she came from is just two house up the street--yet she found her way home from 7-8 blocks away and crossed a busy main street--
Her name is Mindy--and if you can see it or not--she has an orange strip down her nose--but look above that strip and right in the center of her head--between her ears is an orange dot--!!!!! she looks good and healthy here--and probably going to be a mommy one day soon!!!!
I just can't believe I found her after all these months!!!!
Tonight My walk was an animal picture taking walk--
here's a couple more--
I really like how this picture came out--
and a robin--do you know how hard it is to take a picture of a robin--
they are fast moving and flying things!!!!
Oh my Miss Gracie won't leave me alone tonight-
so must go for now--
Have a great week end--
Hugs, Di and that miss gracie
